[horde] horde/passwd

Hello Horders,

my installation of horde (5.2.4) works great but i'm still trying to 
improve configuration if possible.

I switched horde auth from imp+imap to sql-auth with custom queries 
against my postfix/dovecot mailbox db and entered all necessary queries. 
Works like a charm.

Then I installed horde passwd to enable customers to change passwords. 
If I set backend to "hordeauth" in 
webmail/passwd/config/backends.local.php and try to change the password, 
it doesn't work. I get logged out, but password stays the same.


Do I have to set "sql" as backend for passwd and enter the same queries 
as in horde conf or what else could be wrong?

How can I force users to change their passwords on first login and also 
after a defined period of time?

I read on the list that integration of passwd directly into horde was 
planned. Would make life easier I think.

Thanks for your help!
